I think this is an excellent idea, I'd like to use Clannad and School Days to make some flashcards. Most of the dialog in Clannad is unvoiced IIRC, whereas School Days has some fully animated scenes. There is also a licensed U.S. release for School Days HQ that is in english. Top Japanese kindle books sorted by difficulty It seems a lot of people here are struggling to find material at their level. Finding books which difficult enough to learn from but easy enough to not make you want to quit altogether is ... difficult.

It links directly to the Amazon page, where you can download a free sample of the book (you don't actually need a Kindle), see a description, reviews, etc.

Subtitles or transcript for Monster? Kodorakun, thank you. I'm still in RTK-ville at the moment, just trying to look ahead and figure out what I'll be using for material later.
